Midway for Unstampabelles Challenge#33

We are mid-way through the Challenge #33 for Unstampabelles, which has as its theme

 Geometric Shapes

and we have a TWIST to use at least three shapes in your paper project. 

For this Challenge, we do NOT use any stamps which sometimes really stretches the imagination and skill. However, at other times it comes together quite easily. For my first project for Unstampabelles this month (found here) I created some background papers by swiping my card (SU Whisper White) through some TH Distress inks and then overstamping them with the lid of the stamp pad for a square and the lid from a bottle for a circle. After creating my masterpiece ahem ....sorry, card....  I was left with some extra pieces and used them to create this card.

Whisper White SU card folded to create a card blank. Two squares by cutting out around the squares stamped using the ink pad lid. Layered one over the other; used up some Flourish with a Bling bits I had to create the swirls; and then doodled around them with black fine-line pen. Added lots of Annabelle Stamps Sprinkles around the edges and then a sticker for the sentiment.

is the Sponsor for this Challenge

There you have it - squares, circles and a rectangle and an arc!

I will enter this in the following challenges:
